Same Heart

Being a mom is hard.  This is not a new discovery, it's something I've always known.  Sometimes, to make motherhood easier, I'd like to put on a comfortable pair of rose colored glasses.  I'd like to create a state of bliss that would blind me from seeing the reality of the disappointment, pain, concern, or worry that one of my daughters might be experiencing.   I don't have magical glasses to make it easier, instead I feel her pain as if it's my own because as a mother and daughter - I believe we share the same heart.

Now go, go hug your kids!  Especially your daughters!

***Edit 3/15 - I've had a couple of emails asking if this necklace is available for purchase.  Yes, it is.  It's in my Etsy shop.  You can choose your color and your chain.  Here's the info:  thenshemade/etsy

Yes, absolutely. Boys need hugs too. I only have girls and we are knee deep in some heavy hearts right now with one of them so daughters are on my brain. Sorry to leave out boys, I say hug away, girl or boy! :)
